HERE'S THE SCOOP, ALLEY-OOP!

Back in the (infamous and unidentifiable) day…

I started my first blog to document the year I spent studying abroad just outside Tokyo, Japan. Just barely a teenager, with no concept of social media or smartphones, I relied on a basic Xanga blog to communicate with family and friends back home. I monkeyed around with HTML coding and distinctly remember changing my scroll bar to a gradient pink. I was a weird kid.

More than fifteen years later, I am still madly in love with the art (and science) of writing.

I DID THE NORMAL THING... UNTIL I DIDN'T.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Japanese, Chinese, and East Asian Studies at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, I knew I wanted to start a creative business. I landed in the corporate world and earned an invaluable real-world education through challenging advising and project management work (but thank goodness this one didn't require more tuition payments).

I got married, bought an adorable red house in the suburbs, gardened perennials to my heart's content, and worked a reliable job that provided comfortable benefits. Life was good. But as we all know, things couldn't stay that way forever.

Within just a few short years of each other, I lost my grandma, my mom, and my dad. My life was flipped upside-down and inside-out. The third time was (anything but) a charm, and in 2015, I decided to take my first business full-time.

Through a series of nauseating twists and turns, I managed to start and stop several businesses (none of which felt like "the one"). In the fall of 2017, I hired my first business success coach and had the breakthrough I so badly desired:

I AM, AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN, A WRITER.

I studied multilingual communications from kindergarten through college graduation. While Japanese had always been my focus, I picked up Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, German, and Portuguese, too. You know -- just for the heck of it.

I wrote, edited, and published web-facing content while employed at major institutions, such as University of Wisconsin - Madison and Madison Area Technical College.

After posting a comical ad to sell my minivan online, I was hired serendipitously as a freelance ad copywriter.

With over ten years of professional experience and a lifetime of unrelenting passion, how did I not realize I had a brilliantly-lit career path in strategic communications?!

THe long and short of it

I am happier than ever supporting serious CEOs (that’s you!) in their quest to gain loyal customers and naturally increase their bottom line by writing captivating "copy" (words that sell) and meshing it with proven inbound marketing strategies.
